Happily wrapped up in my knitting

I braved the cold this morning to attend knit group. I finished my first sock there:

First knitted sock

Particulars: Cascade 220 (colors 7803: magenta and 8505: white), size 4 DPNs, pattern from Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Schurch - Four Stitch Ribbed Pattern (Garter Rib).

It is quite warm and I really need to make the other soon. It's cold this week! Christy brought some more of her hand dyed yarn. I think she brought about 26 skeins, and left with about 8 to 10. Our group had a yarn feeding frenzy the instant she arrived. I bought two skeins of worsted weight Valley Flowers and two skeins of fingering weight Tempest. After knit group, lovely, enabler Christy decided to swing by the llama store, so of course I went. I got more Cascade 220, some Cascade Pastaza and some sock yarn whose manufacturer's name escapes me at the moment.
